He's No Charles Putnam
Not a bad movie, although it's no Perversion for Profit. This movie is made by the same people though, so what could wrong? Well, nothing I suppose, it's just that this film lacks the paunch and ridiculous desperation that PFP had. This movie, about prosecuting places that sell pornography (eg, going after the little man)says it's message well, but somehow just misses the fist pounding punch that it needs.
Anthony Eisley (a Dragnet regular) as one of the attorneys and Alan Reed (Fred Flintsone) as the 2nd judge....Yabba-Dabba-Doo!

Working up a fear.
Talkative and outdated. Forcing people to follow what a certain group considers moral doesn't always work and entices youngsters even more to check out for themselves censored material.

What desease? In this case, girly magazines and books and other material that offends the producers of this unintentionally funny film.
If they'd lived long enough to see the internet, their heads would explode. This mid-60s film stars
many character actors of the time, familiar to anyone who's seen the old Perry Mason series, for example. Mind you, the producers aren't opposed to free speech...no siree bob. Just speech they don't like. And what they don't like is anything
sexual in nature. Dirty, rotten, filthy sex between the pages...made by maggots. The film might well be regarded last gasp of '50s conformism. Good riddance! Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out! Oh, my! Did I just say "ass"?
